people have a lot of thoughts, but i have some, too. kathleen sebelius made all kinds of promises, she's broken every one of them. she's become part of the fantasy land villains of disney world in some way. she can't get anything right. nancy pelosi said they're still looking through and trying to figure out what obamacare will be. but how about this guy, donald berwick? he's the former cms administrator. he was the guy that was speaking in favor of english, of british, of health care. he had written about the importance of rationing. he's not there anymore. now he's running for governor. he put us in the dumper big, big time. >> he wanted to be governor of what state? >> massachusetts, i think. >> perfect. >> be careful. not good. >> there is somebody we've seen on television tangling with megyn kelly a couple of nights. you suggest ezekiel emmanuel. >> he had a meltdown on megyn kelly and said that somehow it was a self-fulfilling prophecy and that fox was responsible for the web site not going up and the numbers not working out at all. >> how did we do that? >> how about dennis mcdo

. it's not kathleen sebelius' fault that the obamacare web site isn't working. it's not his fault. it's not the democrats' fault who voted for it. it has to be the republicans' fault because none of them were in favor of it. take a listen. >> if we didn't have one wing of one party that was a little less obsessed with repealing health care for 40 million people, more concerned with making sure the law works, if they hadn't spent 40 votes trying to repeal the affordable care act, they might have actually taken some votes on rebuilding our infrastructure or instituting early childhood education for young people across this country, or investing more money in basic research. any of the serious proposals i put forward that would be creating jobs right now, they could have taken votes on that. instead of rooting for failure. >> unfortunately for the president, it has failed in many ways so far because of the web site and also the technical challenges people have faced. what's interesting is apparently because the democrats in the senate are getting their ears chewed off, this thing just is

.com/thankyoucards >>> there are plenty of people who believe the grilling that health and human services kathleen sebelius received this week on capitol hill about the botched rollout of the healthcare.gov website, plenty of people believe that was nothing compared to the drubbing she received in a less normal setting. >> we'll do a challenge. i'm going to try and download every movie ever made and you are going to try to sign up for obama care and we'll see which happens first. >> okay. >> the nightly whipping the new health care law is receiving on comedy central is more than a set of embarrassing punchlines for the administration. good chunk of the young audience is exactly the demographic the obama administration needs to ebb roll if the law is going to succeed. good political satire isn't just funny or entertaining, it is also subversive. that subversive quality has another government questioning whether a man many call the jon stewart of egypt should be allowed to stay on the air. bassem youssef came to international prominence last year with his own weekly skewering of his country's new leader, mohamed mors
